Luca and I spent five wonderful days in this comfortable bed and breakfasts. The people that work there are really nice and kind, the bedroom was very good and the breakfast was super! I'll suggest this place to everybody. Thank you very much for everything Noreen and Neil. .

My niece and I stayed at Virginia's Guest House for one night over the Christmas holidays, and I wish that we could have stayed longer! Noreen and Neil were so good to us, and staying at their guesthouse in Kenmare was truly a highlight of our trip through Ireland! We drove in cold, rainy weather from West Cork to get... More

Neil & Noreen are wonderful hosts. Great location. No problem finding parking out front. Room was very nice and clean. Amenities included a fan and ear plugs for the noise from the street. You select your breakfast time and menu requests before you go to bed. Breakfast was DELICIOUS!!

Noreen and Neil were wonderful hosts during my stay in Nov. 2013. My room was spacious, well-furnished and spic-n-span clean. The guesthouse is located near the center of Kenmare, placing you close to all the action. I will definitely stay with them again the next time I visit Kenmare. Thanks for a fantastic stay!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Neil and Noreens B&B. My room was plenty spacious for one, and I believe my brother and his friend were happy with their space also. The room was clean and comfortable. We were able to park right out front. Breakfast was a delight, and Neil gave us a great tip on music down the street... More

Felt I was at home. Room was snug and cozy. Bed very comfortable. Nice hair dryer. Breakfast was delicious. The banana pancakes were superb! You get a number of breakfast options to choose from. Liked the coffee. Neil was a wonderful resource for dinner places in the area. Both places we went to, Mulcahys and Charcoal were outstanding. He and... More

We stayed by chance in Kenmare after fleeing Dingle because of the torrential rain and wind. Neil and Noreen were absolutely delightful hosts. They showed us our options for rooms, went over the breakfast menu with us and made recommendations for a place for dinner and entertainment. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. Beds were very comfy. Neil moved... More

With another couple, we stayed two nights at Virginia's Guesthouse as we were seeing the sights in the Kenmare area. The host was amiable and offered helpful suggestions for things to do nearby, especially pubs and restaurants. The town of Kenmare is a joy (signs up announcing it had recently been voted one of the "tidiest towns in Ireland")...there's plenty... More

We stayed one night at Virginia's. The breakfast was delicious. Porridge with Bailey's Irish cream, yes please! Full Irish breakfast. The inn keepers so friendly. Wish we could have stayed another night but Dingle was calling. Do not hesitate to book this B&B.
